Dynamite Comics is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month with a bang. They’ve partnered with Humble Bundle to bring you a special deal. Act fast, and you can get up to 130 issues for a low low price.
As with all deals at Humble Bundle, you can set your own price (even as low as a penny). You can name your price and buy Project Superpowers Vol. 1, Vampirella Masters Vol. 1 & 2, Sherlock Holmes Vol. 1: The Trial of Sherlock Holmes, Chaos! #1, Vampirella vs. Fluffy, My Little Phony: A Brony Adventure and Cryptozoic Man #1-4 plus the entire collections of Amanda Hocking’s The Hollowland and The Mocking Dead.
But if you beat the average price (currently $11.30) you will also get Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files: War Cry #1, Legenderry: A Steampunk Adventure #1-3, Pathfinder: Dark Waters Rising Vol. 1, Red Sonja: Queen of Plagues Vol. 1, Vampirella Masters Vol. 4, The Shadow: Midnight in Moscow #1, Miss Fury Vol. 1 and Kevin Smith’s The Green Hornet Vol. 1 & 2 along with the complete George R. R. Martin’s Wild Cards and Jungle Girl Omnibus.
And if you pay more than $15 or more and you will qualify for the bonus titles. In addition to the titles listed above, you will also receive all 36 issues of Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time Vol. 1 and The Dynamite Art of Alex Ross.
eBook bundles like this are a great way to experiment and find new authors to read, but as with any experiment it doesn’t always work out. I have had mixed luck myself; between the Doctor Who graphic novel bundle (bad artwork) and uninteresting titles in the mixed SF/F bundle, I have been discarding a fair number of ebooks after only reading a few pages. (And then there is the bundle I seem to have misplaced entirely, but that isn’t relevant here.)
To be fair, when I started buying ebook bundles I pretty much expected that I would not like most of the titles. Back when I used to buy game bundles, I usually only found 1 or 2 games out of a bundle of 6 that I thought were worth playing.
I prefer to read than to play computer games, so naturally I have been having better luck with ebooks.
Have you bought any ebook bundles? Who has had the best ones?
